Properly cleaning the teeth before bedtime will prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
Brushing disrupts those bacterial colonies living on the biting surfaces and along the gumline.
Flossing disrupts those bacterial colonies living between the teeth and below the gumline.
You have to clean both areas!

What is different about POH?
Our toothbrush bristles are very thin with carefully polished tips. This makes the bristles very soft and gentle, compared to other toothbrushes. Our toothbrush handles are also very different. If a toothbrush handle is huge, then too much leverage is too easily applied, and a bulky handle prevents the delicate manipulation required by Dr. Bass’ method of personal oral hygiene.
Our floss is very different, too. Its many thin strands of nylon enable our floss to disrupt and disorganize the germs, which is the key to preventing tooth decay and gum disease. It won't just slide over the bacterial plaque. The very different, very thin, multiple strands of tiny nylon slip easily between the closest teeth, and is able to get just under the gumline without pushing it further down.
POH Disclosing tablets help you see where to clean, by turning the bacterial plaque bright red. CLiCK.
CURIOUS ABOUT THE BASS METHOD?
Here is a link to a video made a while back, by Dennis Roberts, DDS. Dr. Roberts studied with Dr. Bass beginning in the late 1950's, and remained in contact until Dr. Bass' passing in 1975. It is one mans interpretation of the Bass Method. The argument over exactly how to use a toothbrush and floss is a long and heated one.
